Reviews

Reviewer: Mike Munson - - July 24, 2008
Subject: On the Reputation of Francis Drake and the English Navy
What a fascinating document this is, many thanks for making this available. It is a contemporary picture of 16th/17th century politics and an example of one mans' attempt to cover his failings and denigrate Drake. The loyalty of Drakes comrade and friend shines through his refutation of the libel.
